Bipolar Disorder - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Bipolar Disorder - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Bipolar disorder is a condition where the patient may go through certain periods of extreme happiness and joy which is known as mania. On the other hand, there may be other periods where the patient may be extremely sad and depressed and even suicidal.

In some individuals, these phases may last quite long whereas, in others, they may change very quickly. However, there are certain common symptoms displayed by patients with bipolar disorder. Let's look at a few of them.

  • Feeling extremely happy, to the point of being careless - Certain patients, at the onset of bipolar disorder, will feel extremely happy and have their sense of judgment hampered. When patients feel very elated without proper context, or for very small reasons, it could be an indication that the person is experiencing mania.
  • Feeling extremely depressed - Similarly, on the other end of the spectrum, if a person feels extremely depressed without an appropriate reason, it may be due to bipolar disorder. Also, the severity of depression and the length of time for which a person experiences it is also an indicator of the condition.
  • Lack of interest in activities which formerly interested you - You may suddenly lose interest in an activity that genuinely interested you earlier. This may include your profession or hobbies.
  • Loss of appetite during the depression phases - During the phases of depression or sadness, which may sometimes last for months, a person may rapidly lose weight due to lack of interest in food. Even for patients who have shorter cycles of changes lasting for only a few weeks, this will be noticeable.
  • Extreme restlessness and lack of sleep during the manic phases - When the person enters a manic or happy cycle, it may trigger over enthusiasm, restlessness and lack of sleep. This, like the depression phase, will also vary from patient to patient and may continue for the entire duration of the phase. A jump from a depression cycle into this phase will be definitely noticed by others.


If a few of these symptoms are detected, then the patient should be taken to a mental health professional for appropriate treatment as soon as possible. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Psychologist,
A diabetic person also need to attend counselling session along with their medications. Her symptoms are part of the illness. Besides this, it must be difficult for you to manage with your mother's doubting nature. It may not be possible to control everything but only those things that are under your control. Some things you may have to live with and in this case you need to know how to manage and cope with it. Counselling will help you to find this balance and tools to manage your issues in the best way. If you have any queries about this please contact me on private chat.

Hello most people with anxiety disorders need psychotherapy or medications to get anxiety under control, lifestyle changes also can make a difference. Here's what you can do: Keep physically active. Develop a routine so that you're physically active most days of the week. Exercise is a powerful stress reducer. It may improve your mood and help you stay healthy. Start out slowly and gradually increase the amount and intensity of your activities. Avoid alcohol and other sedatives. These substances can worsen anxiety. Quit smoking and cut back or quit drinking coffee. Both nicotine and caffeine can worsen anxiety. Use relaxation techniques. Visualization techniques, meditation and yoga are examples of relaxation techniques that can ease anxiety. Make sleep a priority. Do what you can to make sure you're getting enough sleep to feel rested. If you aren't sleeping well, see your doctor. Eat healthy. Healthy eating such as focusing on plant based food -vegetables, fruits, whole grains and fish Avoid dairy and meat products if you want specific advice take a consult.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Bipolar requires medications, mood stabilizers and anti-psychotics. Psychotherapy, can improve coping skills, relapse identification and reduce the morbidity from the illness, not a primary therapy

Panic Disorder - 12 Signs You Are Suffering From it!

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana
Panic Disorder - 12 Signs You Are Suffering From it!

Panic disorder is a condition that strikes without reason or caution and can be serious. Indications of panic disorder usually include sudden attacks of panic and anxiety, in addition to physical side effects, such as sweating and a pounding heart. During a fit of panic, the reaction is based on the circumstances, which may not be threatening in general, but triggers a feeling of panic. After some time, a person with a panic disorder builds up a consistent fear of having another fit of anxiety, which can influence the every day functioning and lifestyle in general. Panic disorder usually occurs alongside other conditions like depression, liquor abuse, or drug abuse.

You might experience the ill effects of a panic disorder if you:

  1. Encounter frequent, unforeseen fits of anxiety that are not attached to a particular circumstance or event
  2. Stress over having another fit of anxiety
  3. Are trying to avoid the places of your precious panic attacks

The most common symptoms of a panic disorder are as follows:

  1. Trouble relaxing and feeling uneasy most of the time
  2. Beating heart or abdominal pain with a feeling of nervousness
  3. Serious irrational and emotional fear
  4. Feeling as if you are out of breath
  5. Feeling as if you are being choked or smothered
  6. Dizzy spells
  7. Trembling or shaking
  8. Sweating constantly
  9. Feeling nauseous or having a stomach ache
  10. Shivering or numbness in the fingers and toes
  11. Sudden chills or hot flashes
  12. A fear that you are losing control or are about to die

While a single panic attack may just last a couple of minutes, the impact of the experience can leave a long lasting impression and make you susceptible to more such attacks. In case you have this issue, the repetitive fits of panic take an emotional toll. The memory of the fear that you felt during these attacks can affect your self-confidence and cause interruption to your regular day-to-day existence. In the end, this prompts to the following panic disorder effects:

  1. Expectant uneasiness: Instead of feeling like yourself in the middle of panic attacks, you feel tensed and on edge. This uneasiness originates from a dread of having future attacks of anxiety. This fear is seen more often than not, and can be extremely disabling at times.
  2. Phobic avoidance: You start to stay away from specific circumstances or situations. This might happen since you are maintaining a strategic distance because of your previous panic attack. On the other hand, you may stay away from areas where escape would be troublesome or help would be inaccessible in case you had a fit of panic.
  3. Medicines: Medicines can be used to control or decrease a majority of the side effects of panic disorder. Even if medicines do not form a part of the main treatment, when combined with other treatments, medicines are very effective. Eg. therapy and lifestyle changes. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Hi this is prasad need some help .am 36 years old male, suffering from anxiety and some mental health problems.
Due to changing lifestyle and incresing work pressure stress and anxiety level are increasing day by day,and peoples are expressing their stress level in different forms such as road rage and they don't even know the reason for their anger and frustration. Its good that you want to change this situation,you can take help of any counsellor.in the meantime try to do few things ,trust me you will see the difference. 1.Do something new in which you are intrested. 2.Don't think again and again on this topic it will increase your frustration level. 3.when you feel bad divert your mind and make it in active condition. 4.Don't expect any thing from anyone. 5.Listen loud music or watch any comedy serial 6.make some plan for weekend with whom you feel comfortable 7.Do some yoga and deep breathing exercise 8.write on paper whatever disturbs you.

Your grievance may be genuine. Wounded feelings don't heal easily. But for your own wellbeing you have to get past this. Focus on the positive aspects of him and his family. Nobody is perfect. Do not allow negative thoughts dominate you. Allow them to pass through you. You will soon find peace coming back to you. It is all in the mind. Attitude decides life.

You may have sinusitis frontal or maxillary or it could be error of refraction of vision so get your eye-site checked of for correction of vision if there is any. Do warm saline gargle regularly and have homemade freshly prepared lemon juices which id very rich in vitamin c thereby increasing your body autoimmunity which prevents infection including viral infection. Have plenty of water by mouth. Go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercise. It will be alright.

No they are safe drugs, but do not seem to be from a standard company, seems local ones. Get the same from a good company, ask your psychiatrist for it. Also you need to stop the Ona 0.5 mg after some time because that is not advisable on a longer run. All the best.

Hello, Doctor. My father is 46 years old, a BP and diabetes patient. For about 2 weeks now, he is facing Tinnitus in his left ear. The right ear is fine. Now, recently, he has started having severe hypnic jerks due to which he is unable to sleep. He faces those jerks sometimes even when he is awake and sitting. His body has started twitching due to jerks. He has been taking nurokind for past 4 months now as he had cervical spondylitis in his neck. He is presently taking clonazepam and other medicines for vertigo as prescribed by the ent doctors. Are there any chances of him having brain tumor, or is it just because of stress or aging.

Neurosurgeon, Kochi
Hello Mr. lybrate-user. It's very uncommon for 46 years old to have such tinnitus and vertigo in d background of spondylitis (as you mentioned) with limb jerks. your suspicion is appreciated. Slow growing benign tumours of brain can present like dis in early stages. Nd you cannot rule dem out without an imaging. All this aging and secondary to risk factors comes later. For further queries nd suggestions, you can contact me.

I just broke up with my fiancee who also happens to be my business partner. We were living in. Still have to see him everyday after he coldly walked out on me (rather asked me to move out of my house as his parents were living with us). His issues with me were blown out of proportion by his parents resulting in a bad break up. I cant quit work as lot of families money is at stake cause of the start up. And I can't work with him cause it hurts too much to see him so cold and indifferent. What do I do?

Psychologist,
That is a tough situation to be in. Counselling can help you to sort out your feelings and thoughts and move towards a workable solution. Since you mention that you can't quit due to your financial stake in the company, you could look at how you can manage yourself and your feelings when you see him cold and indifferent. Sometimes a closer look at a broken relationship helps bring a closure and peace of mind. Please click on private chat for a personalised session.
